Background: Work performance is a hugely important process to the entire com­pany’s success, as it affects a company’s performance. Work performance is the assessment of whether an employee has done their job well. It is an individual eva­luation, measured based on a single person’s effort.  This study aimed to de­ter­mine the effects of workload and job satisfaction on work performance among health workers at Siloam Hospital, East Nusa Tenggara.

Subjects and Method: This was a cross-sectional study conducted at Siloam Hos­pital, Kupang, East Nusa Tenggara. A total of 97 health workers were selected for this study. The dependent variable was work performance. The independent vari­ables were job satisfaction and workload. The data were collected by questionnaire and analyzed by a multiple logistic regression.

Results: Work performance increased with job satisfaction (OR= 4.25; p= 0.024) but decreased with workload (OR= 0.37; p= 0.035).

Conclusion: Work performance increases with job satisfaction but decreases with workload.

Keywords: work performance, job satisfaction, workload.
